Stone Witch


Categories: [Architecture]  [Europe]  [France]  
Gothic cathedrals were often ornamented with tormented figures, such as this Witch, to scare the common people and remind them that the End of Days could be near.
Nowadays, as people became more educated, Gargoyles don"t scare anyone. Not even pigeons, which seem to appreciate this nest.
